Uses, Species, Types and Brands
Hardwood flooring is a classic flooring material that is a favourite among homeowners. Different colours, textures and species are used to manufacture superior quality floor planks of different grades.
Hardwood can be used for many purposes besides flooring. Some popular uses of hardwood are:
- Making sports equipment like hockey sticks (usually made from hickory)
- Boatmaking (including teak and mahogany)
- Furniture (best quality made from hardwood)
Its many uses make hardwood an indispensable material. For the flooring industry, the best quality woods come from species harvested in sustainable forests. The logs are then sawn in different styles like rift-sawn, flat-sawn and quarter-sawn to achieve different graining patterns. At our flooring store in Toronto, we have numerous top brands. Armstrong, Bruce Hardwood Floors and Hardwood Canada are some of the top brands in the GTA, and clients can find a wide variety of collections from these brands in store.
You also get different textures like glossy, sheen, rustic, hand scraped, distressed and many more. The best thing about hardwood is that you can stain it any colour, ranging from white to earthy browns and even black, to get the perfect look for your home.
